Widefield Community Center Summer Theatre presents "Hydrangea Albright: Comedy or Tragedy?"
7:00 PM- 9:30 PM
Janitell Jr High School, 7635 Fountain Mesa Road, Fountain CO 80817
Come see the Widefield Community Center Summer Theatre group present "Hydrangea Albright: Comedy or Tragedy?" ... A theatre accidentally hires two different playwrights to write a play about Hydrangea Albright, a young girl whose family is cursed with bad luck. One playwright sees her story as a tragedy filled with disappointment and sadness, while the other playwright sees Hydrangea's story as a whimsical comedy in which failure leads to new opportunity. The two playwrights argue, duel with their pens and even rewrite each other's scenes. Laughing all the way, we learn that there's more than one way to react to an unfortunate series of events.
The show begins at 7pm at Janitell Jr. High School. Tickets can be pre-purchased at the Widefield Community Center or at the door.

Sara Evans with Special Guest Robert Earl Keen
Pikes Peak Center, 190 S. Cascade Ave. Colorado Springs, CO 80903
Sara Evans has developed a reputation for delivering thoroughly satisfying albums full of great songs brought to life by her distinctive voice. That heart-in-the-throat quality coupled with an edgy contemporary sensibility that keeps her at the vanguard of today’s successful country performers. She’s sold nearly six million records and her last four albums have been certified Gold, Platinum or multi-Platinum. At the root of all those accolades is a God-given talent fueled by an impressive Midwestern work ethic instilled by her parents. Seven albums into an already impressive career and Evans has never been more excited about the music she’s making! Confidence is sexy and creativity is empowering. Rarely have those qualities merged into a more potent package then on Sara Evans’ new album Slow Me Down.
Robert Earl Keen is an American singer-songwriter and entertainer living in the central Texas hill country. Debuting with 1984's No Kinda Dancer, the Houston native has recorded 18 full-length albums for both independent and major record labels, while his songs have also been covered by several different artists from the country, folk and Texas country music scenes including George Strait, Joe Ely, Lyle Lovett, The Highwaymen, Nanci Griffith, and the Dixie Chicks. Although both his albums and live performances span many different styles, from folk, country, and bluegrass to rock, he is most commonly affiliated with the Americana movements. Keen has long been heralded as one of the Lone Star State's most popular and consistently acclaimed musical ambassadors. Among the large contingent of talented songwriters who emerged in Texas in the '80s and '90s, Robert Earl Keen struck an unusual balance between sensitive story-portraits and raucous barroom fun.

Relay for Life of Teller County
12:00 pm- 12:00am
Woodland Park High School Field 15 N. Baldwin St, Woodland Park, Co
Teller County American Cancer Society Relay for Life
Date: July 26, 2014
Time: Noon to Midnight “Because Cancer Never Sleeps”
Location: Woodland Park High School Field
American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life is officially underway! Our committee is formed and we are ready to plan the best Relay event yet. The date is set for July 26, in hopes that more people from our community can participate in this very important day.
Unfortunately, cancer has touched all of our lives in one way or another. Raising money for Teller County’s Relay for Life helps provide cancer patients more assistance in our own community. By being a part of Relay, our funds have helped bring classes such as “Look Good, Feel Better” to Woodland Park as well as provide transportation to Colorado Springs for patients needing treatments downtown. This is only the beginning; the more funds we raise, the more options cancer patients will have in Teller County. Relay for Life is a time to celebrate all the cancer survivors throughout Teller County as well as remember and honor those who lost their battles to the disease.
Please consider forming a team and participating in the day and night event. See us at Farmer’s Market and around town. Please donate to this cause. We can’t do this without your support; so thank you in advance.
For more information or to have someone speak more about Relay for Life, contact us at 719-630-4978, www.relayforlife.org/tellercountyco
